Fiscal Year Awarded
Project Duration
3 years


Understanding the patterns of brain functioning of individuals exposed to 9/11 as children is essential to safeguarding their mental health. This study will assess brain structure and function in 3 adult groups who were children at 9/11: 1) Highly Exposed to 9/11 with Anxiety Disorders; 2) Highly Exposed to 9/11 without Anxiety Disorders; 3) No Exposed and No Mental Disorders. These findings will improve our understanding of emotional, memory and cognitive systems, which are sensitive to traumatic stress during development, and will inform the trajectory of psychiatric disorders and could guide preventative and treatment strategies for children exposed to trauma.
